Influence of hydraulic sequential tests on the burst strength of Type-4 compressed hydrogen containers

Abstract

One of the topics for the revision deliberation of GTR13 on hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles is the study of an appropriate initial burst pressure of the containers. The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of the hydraulic sequential tests on the residual burst pressure in order to examine the appropriate initial burst pressure correlated with the provisions for the residual burst pressure at the Endof-Life (EOL). Specifically, we evaluated any deterioration and variations of burst pressure due to hydraulic sequential tests on 70MPa compressed-hydrogen containers. When the burst pressure after the hydraulic sequential testing (EOL) was compared with the initial burst pressure at the beginning of life (BOL), the pressure proved to have decreased by a few percent while the variation increased. In the burst test it was observed that the rupture originated in the cylindrical part in all the BOL containers while in some of the EOL containers the rupture originated in the dome part. Since the dome part is a section that suffers an impact of vertical drop test, it is conceivable that some sort of damage occurred in the CFRP. Therefore, it was assumed that this damage was the main causal factor for the decrease in the burst pressure and the increase of the burst pressure variation at the dome part.
